11:40am
normal. a lot of people think it's a lot. it's normal on a daily basis. >> if you don't comb your hair, you are going to have a brush full of hair. not combing your hair on a certain day then combing the next day, you have double the amount of hair. >> is it safe for pregnant women to perm or dye their hair? >> it depends. when we talk hair dye, that contains peroxide, it can be absorbed into the hair. most stylists will not give treatments to pregnant women. rinses seem to be okay. perms, relaxers, things like that because it's not absorbed into the system seem to be okay. products containing peroxide should be avoided. >> is it dangerous to the childbirth? >> it's unethical to test these
11:41am
products on pregnant women so we will probably never know. due to certain regulations as far as certain ingredients and products like what the cdc may say or what have you, we go on levels. some of these products have 4% up to 10% peroxides in them. they should be avoided. >> if your hair is shaven, it will grow in thicker and courser. i say no. >> that's a myth. you hear young girls talk about it all the time. i started shaving my legs and my hair came in thicker. that's the nature of hair growth. at puberty, your hair is going to come in thicker. so, when you see that it's thick enough or dense enough, you tend to shave. it's not related. it's not proportionate to the amount of shaving you do. >> since we are on the subject of hair, nice haircut. >> thank you. >> that leads to the next
11:42am
question. cutting the ends, does it make it grow faster? >> no. but it seems like it. no, the hair grows from the root. so, keeping it groomed and cut, there's less breakage. that's the difference that you see. the hair grows from the root like the nail doesn't grow from the tip, it grows from the root. >> pregnant women lose their hair after childbirth. >> that's true in most cases. you hear about women who are pregnant saying my hair grew like a weed, then after they deliver the baby, they come in usually upset because they are shedding enormous amount of hair. usually, i can guess the age of the child, it's about three months after delivery, there's a massive amount of shedding. what we mean is there's more than 100 hairs a day. the hair is all over the place. it's on your shoulders, the bathroom floor, the sink.
11:43am
we see that quite often. it's totally reversible. it doesn't mean you are losing all your hair. it usually resolves in six months. >> doctor, next segment, you teach me how to get mine back. >> okay. thank you. >> please, please, help me. >> it's 11:43. the word of the year, plus from music to a sweet treat. ideas for the reception of our winter wedding. stay with us.
